Airline Highway Down to 2 Lanes at St. Charles-Jefferson Parish Line

By Anonymous

The East Jefferson Levee District has reduced Airline Highway to two lanes - one inbound and one outbound - as crews began closing the levee at the St. Charles-Jefferson Parish Line in Kenner.

Airline Highway (U.S. 61) crosses the west return levee at that point and the roadway is closed when high waters from emergency storm events threaten the area. EJLD executive director Campbell said anyone with questions about the partial and/or eventual closure of the highway should call her at 733-0087.
